Introduction: The Mesh Pro Sub Ohm Tank from Freemax
The Freemax Mesh Pro is the new sub ohm tank which now has multiple mesh coils.
The Freemax Fireluke Mesh was a huge hit and I loved in – that much I now own 3 of them!
The Mesh Pro is not compatible with the existing Fireluke Mesh coil heads but it is compatible with the existing Freemax Fireluke standard tank coils.
The kit includes the new Fireluke Single mesh coil and the Double mesh. There is a new triple mesh coil which you can purchase too.
The standard capacity is 6ml but there are also bubble glass options for 4ml and 5ml. Expect the capacity to be limited to 2ml for sale in the EU due to the TPD regulations.
The tank has a slide top fill system and adjustable airflow on the base.
The gold plated 510 connection can also be adjusted for use on mods which haven’t got spring loaded connectors.
There are 6 resin colours to choose from – Purple, Black, Pink, Orange, Green and Blue. Plus recently released are 5 stainless steel versions in Black, Gun, Rainbow, Golden or Silver.
I have been really looking forward to this – let’s get her filled up and fired up!
This tank was sent to me for purposes of a review but my opinions are my own based on the performance of the tank I received.

Build Quality & Design
My Freemax Mesh Pro tank came in the Purple Resin colour and the tank glass does have “Not for sale” etched into it – so that does appear on some of my photos I am afraid!
I have to say although the resin finish is beautiful this tank is not as pretty as the Fireluke Mesh. Pictured below is the Mesh Pro with the original Fireluke Mesh in Rainbow SS.
The glass installed is the 5ml tall glass, but the kit also includes the 6ml Pyrex bubble glass.
It looks very tall and the top and bottom cap don’t flow with the bubble glass.
As this was a strange colour to match to a mod – I found it didn’t look right with a black mod – so I decided the VZone Graffiti was a good match!
Build quality as usual from Freemax is just perfect, the top cap slides smoothly as does the airflow control ring. It is easy to unscrew the bottom of the tank for coil replacement.
The drip tip is an 810 fitment and due to the inclusion of an internal O-ring you can use drip tips with or without (Goon style) O-rings. The Goon style were a little loose on my tank though.
How Does the Freemax Mesh Pro Tank Perform?
Not much to tell you here – other than to adjust the airflow turn the ring at the base of the tank. This will expose the airflow inlet slots. Fully open slot = unrestricted airflow and you can close the slot by rotating the ring to suit your preference.
How To Fill The Tank
- Look for the red dot on the ring just below the top of the tank.
- Push the top cap across at the point of the red dot.
- Squeeze liquid into the filling port – Freemax say to fill to 3/4 full.
- Slide the top cap back into position.
How To Install The Coil Head
- Remove the tank from the mod.
- Turn the tank upside down – if it is more than about a quarter full you will get some liquid coming out of the drip tip – so have some tissue to hand!
- Unscrew the base of the tank.
- If a coil is installed this is simply unscrewed from the tank base.
- Screw a new coil head into the tank base.
- Screw the tank base onto the tank.
- Fill the tank and leave to stand for at least 10 minutes – these are mesh coils with a lot of wicking and a dry hit will not be pleasant!
You can also use the coils for the original Freemax Fireluke tank in the Mesh Pro.
Flavour & Cloud Production
This is a sub ohm tank so you need high VG e-liquid. Read our guide to PG and VG in e-liquid for more info.
I used my usual 80% VG 6mg nicotine Stika Bombz Fruit Salad liquid as I find it easy to compare between tanks.
The airflow was best for me in the mid position but wide open is barely any restriction and you can close it off completely – so everything inbetween!
Freemax Kanthal Double Mesh Coil
I started off at 60W which was a very cool vape. From 65W onwards this tank comes alive.
70-75W OMG such a smooth beautiful cloudy tasty vape! I already love this tank!
At 80-85W the taste is so warm it’s like eating your e-liquid it is that good. At 90W it is still good and loads of vapour. What a performer this tank with the double coil is!
My preference was 75W – nice and warm not hot, really tasty and lots of vapour. Well done Freemax I didn’t think the Fireluke Mesh could be improved on. In fact this coil for me kills even the Horizon Falcon Mesh!
Freemax Kanthal Single Mesh Coil
This is a single coil of 0.15ohm and rated for 40-70W.
So I started at 45W – not much flavour but a good cloud from this coil even at this low wattage.
Moving up the wattage I found the taste didn’t really kick in until over 65W, I like this best at 70-75W. This is a lot drier vapour and not as pure flavour as the double. This coil made me really thirsty!
Flavour wise this isn’t a patch on the double mesh – but it’s a decent performer. However the vapour production is excellent.
If you prefer clouds to pure taste this is the coil for you! Personally I couldn’t wait to get the double mesh coil back in the tank!
- Huge e-liquid capacity plus additional tank options.
- Plenty of coil options to suit your preference.
- Excellent build quality.
- Filling is much easier than Fireluke Mesh
- Plenty of options for your own 810 drip tip
- Not quite as pretty as the original Fireluke Mesh – but that is my opinion.
- Drip tip is very wide and the walls are very thin – doesn’t affect the vapour but feels a bit too big for me.
- Would have been nice to have the triple mesh coil in the kit too.
Final Review Verdict
I started testing this tank with the double mesh and within 10 vapes I had fallen in love. My favourite Sub Ohm tank was previously the Horizon Falcon but I have to say the Freemax Mesh Pro has now taken that crown.
The double mesh coil gives a beautiful flavour in a smooth warm to hot vape. It is so smooth you can almost feel the tickle on your tastebuds as your e-liquids come alive. Also so far I have had 11 days use from the double mesh coil and it still tastes amazing!
The single coil performs well just not a patch on the double. However the vapour production is really surprising from the single mesh!
Just buy it – it is amazing. If like me you love the flavour and vapour from rebuildables but haven’t the hand dexterity, time or motivation to build decks – this is a very respectable alternative.
Bad points – well it isn’t as pretty as the original Fireluke Mesh and some might say it is a bit greedy on e-liquid – I found it no more greedy than other Mesh tanks I own. Plus I love vaping on this so much I am actually vaping a lot heavier.
I would love to try the triple mesh coil too – sadly this was not included in the kit which is a shame and I will have to buy a 3 pack of these just to try it out? I might spend my money on the double mesh instead as I already know I love those.
Everything else about this tank is incredible – Freemax have pulled out another winner!
